Id aim for 50 cents per gallon. you can go to petco and get a brand new tank for a dollar per gallon.
I take in different things when buying. What does it come with? are there fish I dont want and need to rehome? hows the stand(will it need redoing? is it custom" Hardwood etc)
Whats the filter system like? How much cleaning does it need? I did pay a little more for a 55 gallon then I should of but it came with a good 10 pounds of Live Rock Rubble so imo
it was worth paying more just for that.
Im working right now, on a 100 gallon, stand, lights hood, for 75 bucks. It will need a lot of cleaning, but comes with the stand which always seems to be the most costly part of buying tanks.
